Please Don’t Smile

Please Don’t Smile

Photo series by Malte Wandel through his nine month stay in Ghana, Burkina Faso and Togo.

In the series “PLEASE DON´T SMILE”, Malte Wandel successfully captures moments of the present in West African towns, from which he highlights certain protagonists and tells their stories. Discreetly, he approaches passers-by, places eccentric individuals and representatives of unknown subcultures centre-frame and allows us an unusual view into life and personalities in today’s West Africa. Directly and unmodified, Wandel’s work deals with a wide variety of characters and the circumstances of their lives – during their hard daily work but also in their leisure time.
